I saw that Eunny Jang pullover! Where is the pattern for it?
I use Ravelry to organize my own notebook mostly…and I do cross-comparisons of other’s projects. Like if I am knitting the “Something Red” sweater, I check out all the other “Something Red” projects to view their modifications, to read their notes, etc. I have learned some really useful things prior to casting on my own sweater.
I also like to keep up with certain interests. I always check into my Elsebeth Lavold Fans Club. Also like to read up in the Addi Lovers Group and see what’s new. Lots of good information in both.
I don’t socialize at Ravelry, other than a few knitters that have contacted me for help, or vice versa. I have been very pleasantly surprised at how helpful other knitters have been if I post a question about a project that I’m going to knit and that they have already blazed trail on!
I’ve researched patterns a bit…and found some things I love…and I’ve researched yarns a bit…and found out the lowdown quite a bit. But just a bit.
All in all, I think the Ravelry software and groups are great, but I don’t let the Groups suck up a lot of my time.
I think Knitting Help is more community oriented…and is more of a family. We have actually established friendships here at KH. I am here more than there. I haven’t taken on any ‘responsibilities’ over there, either.
